CONSIDERATIONS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HUMAN FACTORS ATMS HANDBOOK

Human factors in Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) is a major element in FHWA's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) program. Currently, a project led by Georgia Tech Research Institute is developing human factors design tools to assist new and evolving, Traffic Management Centers (TMCs). Major components of the human factors ATMS project include a top down, systems engineering analysis for an idealized traffic management system, a comparable systems analysis of similar control rooms, the development of a TMC simulator specifically for human factors research in TMC issues, and the performance of that research using the simulator which is in progress. Finally, a human factors handbook for ATMS design is being prepared to support TMC design.
